Nominees sought for HCC alumni recognition

FREEPORT – Nominations are due by Sept. 15 to nominate recipients for Highland Community College’s 23rd annual Distinguished Alumni Awards.

Recipients will be recognized at the Foundation’s October meeting. Nominees do not have to currently live in the college’s district.

The Foundation is looking for people who started at Highland, who have demonstrated community leadership and professional achievement, and who believe in the mission of community colleges and higher education. Nominees with an earned degree are preferred, although nominees who took some classes at the college, or who took part in the Leadership Forum or Leadership Institute also will be considered.
